Overview

New Adult Romantic Thriller--intended for mature audiences due to sex, violence, and bad, bad words.

Beautiful Disaster meets Nikita.

Leigh Thorn is hiding out in a backwoods college because her father put her in danger, and if the wrong people find her, she’s dead. She’d rather snort lines than think about that. She’d rather do shots of marshmallow-flavored vodka until she can’t remember.

When Griffin Fawkes arrives with the news that her father’s dead, she isn’t sure if she cares. He wasn’t much of a father anyway. The only silver lining here is that Griffin’s jaw-droppingly gorgeous, and Leigh wants him bad.

Griffin owes his life to Leigh's father. The man begged him to keep his daughter safe. But Griffin didn't expect a cocaine-fueled party girl who barely seems to care about her own safety. It seems like she'd rather destroy herself than anything else.

Even worse, he didn't expect he'd care about her. He knows he's too damaged to ever really be with a woman. The best he can do is to make sure she’s safe from whoever could hurt her. Including herself. Including himself.

Of course, fighting off men with guns is starting to seem easier than keeping his hands off Leigh.

Meet the Author

V. J. Chambers likes bad boys, but she likes them to be actual bad boys, not misunderstood weaklings who cover up their emotional scars with a thin veneer of pretend bad-boy-ness.

She likes to tackle difficult philosophical questions. She likes to push fiction to the edge, to go just a little farther.

She writes stories about difficult people living difficult lives in difficult situations. Usually, there’s magic. Or monsters. Or space. Or gun fights. A lot of times, there’s also L-O-V-E. (Or at least uncomfortable conversations about sex.)

She’s the author of the Jason and Azazel series and many other stories for teens and adults. She lives in Shepherdstown, WV with her boyfriend Aaron and their cat.

    Just finished this book, & I have to say once again V.J. Cha

    Just finished this book, & I have to say once again V.J. Chambers didn't let me down. I really enjoyed this book. I liked the plot and the characters and their relationship development though out this book. It kept me guessing and I enjoyed that. At certain parts in the book I was reminded of some if the other work that was written by V.J. Chambers but I didn't mind since I have liked/loved every book she has written. I highly recommend reading her work you won't be disappointed.

    Dark characters great writing

    Writing is well done. Her characters are not perfect and have their flaws but we still fall in love with them. Great story not a cliff hanger
